Sweet One

Happy Friday, friends!  I made this card to welcome a family friend's second baby, Rebecca, into the world.  :)  I wanted to stay away from the typical pink, so I decided on purples and yellows.  The patterned paper is by ATD and the cardstocks were in my stash.  I used my Fiskars border punch on the darker yellow paper and tied some Prism craft thread around it (oh how I wish I had twine!).  The "sweet one" embellishment is a Stampin' Up! image stamped with Heliotrope Colorbox ink and punched with a SU scalloped circle.  To complement the moon and stars in the image, I made my own patterned paper with Hero Arts' Sky's the Limit set.  I clear embossed all of the images, but they weren't showing up clearly, so I rubbed some purple chalk around the edges for definition.  I think it gives it a soft, dreamy look.  To finish off the card, I added some crisp white brads from my stash.  The sketch is from Sweet Sunday 104:

I hope you like my sweet baby card, thanks for stopping by!

What a sweet baby card. I am a 'dot' lover so this is just extra adorable. I was going to say my Grand Nesties on my Woodware challenge card were cut with my sister's Big Shot. I only have the Cuttlebug and, of course, the plate is a bit too short. Ugh! I'll have to buy a new Grand Calibur, too. Geez! LOL
